Nigeria declared Ebola-free; ‘spectacular success’ due in a big part to HYDRATION HYDRATION HYDRATION!!!!!

Such great news…

 

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Water laced with salt and sugar, and gallons of the nasty-tasting stuff.

Doctors who survived Ebola in Nigeria credited heavy doses of fluids with saving their lives as the World Health Organization declared the country Ebola-free Monday, a rare victory in the battle against the disease that is ravaging West Africa.

In the end, Nigeria — the most populous country in Africa, with 160 million people — had just 20 cases, including eight deaths, a lower death rate than the 70 percent seen elsewhere across the stricken region.

Officials are crediting strong tracking and isolation of people exposed to the virus, and aggressive rehydration of infected patients to counter the effects of vomiting, diarrhea and other symptoms.

Nigeria’s containment of Ebola is a “spectacular success story,” said Rui Gama Vaz, WHO director for Nigeria.

Survivor Dr. Adaora Igonoh said the treatment is not easy. It entails drinking, as she did, at least five liters (1.3 gallons) of the solution every day for five or six days when you have mouth sores and a sore throat and feel depressed.

“You don’t want to drink anything. You’re too weak, and with the sore throat it’s difficult to swallow, but you know when you have just vomited, you need it,” she told The Associated Press. “I had to mentally tell myself, ‘You have got to drink this fluid, whether it tastes nice or not.’”

Some 9,000 people have been infected with Ebola, and about 4,500 have died, mostly in hard-hit Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, with the number of cases expected to increase exponentially in the coming weeks.

Dr. Simon Mardel, one of the world’s leading experts on viral hemorrhagic fevers, said the number of deaths could be cut in half if infected people were taught to properly hydrate themselves and do not take anti-inflammatory drugs, which can actually harm Ebola victims.

In other developments:

— About 120 people in the U.S. are being monitored for symptoms because they may have had contact with one of Dallas’ three Ebola victims. More than 40 others have been given the all-clear after the 21-day maximum incubation period for the virus ended.

— The European Union stepped up efforts to raise nearly $1.3 billion to combat the outbreak.

— President Barack Obama is working the phones with world leaders, appealing to them to join the fight.

— WHO director Margaret Chan said that an internal WHO report obtained by the AP that said the U.N. agency bungled efforts to control the outbreak was “a work in progress,” and “the facts have not been fully checked.”

Mardel, of Britain’s University Hospital of South Manchester, called rehydration a low-tech approach that has been neglected by a medical system focused on groundbreaking research.

Nigeria’s outbreak began in Lagos with a single infected Liberian diplomat who flew in in July, bringing the terrifying disease to Africa’s biggest city, with 21 million people.

Many feared the worst in a city with large numbers of people living in crowded and unsanitary conditions in slums.

“The last thing anyone in the world wants to hear is the two words, ‘Ebola’ and ‘Lagos,’ in the same sentence,” U.S. consul general Jeffrey Hawkins noted at the time, saying the development raised the specter of an “apocalyptic urban outbreak.”

Instead, with swift coordination among state and federal health officials, the WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and with ample financial and material resources from Nigeria’s government, isolation wards were constructed and Ebola treatment centers designated.

Health workers tracked down nearly 100 percent of those who had contact with the infected, paying 18,500 visits to 894 people.

The eight deaths included two doctors and a nurse.

Monday’s announcement came 42 days — twice the incubation period — since the last case in Nigeria tested negative.

“The outbreak in Nigeria has been contained,” WHO’s Vaz said. “But we must be clear that we only won a battle. The war will only end when West Africa is also declared free of Ebola.”

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan said the success shows what Nigerians can achieve when they set aside their differences. He urged his people to replicate “the unity of purpose and all-hands-on-deck approach” in other areas of national life.

There is no licensed treatment for Ebola, so doctors focus on hydration and supportive care, even in developed countries. In some cases, doctors have been surprised that keeping patients hydrated has been enough to save them.

To improve survival rates, Mardel said, it is time to designate packaged rehydration solutions as part of the cure. He said more needs to be done to make the fluids palatable, such as making the solutions weaker or flavoring them.

Igonoh said she sometimes added orange juice.

Whittell Warriors From Zephyr Cove Nevada Now 8-0 on the Season After Winning in Double Overtime!!!!

Oh, my god, what an incredible football game my son’s team played Friday night in Hawthorne NV!!! Battling the Serpents from Mineral County High School, they went in at half time behind 36-22, then fell behind in the third quarter 44-22… That was the last touchdown the Whittell Warriors allowed in regulation, and they scored 22 unanswered points to tie the game while playing what can only be described as incredible defense… Double overtime had to be played before Whittell came out the victor, 56 to 50… I am so moved by this team and what they have done this year, they are now 8-0. Last year they finished 1-9. These kids have had a pretty easy first 7 games, but this one was against a team that was just as good as they were, and they pulled off a fantastic comeback, thanks to guts and great coaching… Was such a pleasure to watch, I am literally moved to tears just by sharing this… So proud of this team!!!  Oh, and they are powered by H2 UltraWater From AlkaViva!!!

Evidence for nanobubbles

Nanobubblesi [1632198920132108] are gas-containing cavities in aqueousf solution (such cavities are often called bubbles).e It is now thought that bulk nanobubbles may be present in most aqueous solutions, possibly being constantly created by cosmic radiation [2108, 2109], and that surface nanobubbles are present at most surfaces. These nanobubbles may have far reaching physical, chemical and biological effects. They are in constant flux with gas molecules both leaving and entering continuously. They are under excess pressure as the surface tension causes a tendency to minimize their surface area, and hence volume.a For the same volume of bubble their surface area (A) increases proportional to the reduction in bubble diameter (DA = 6/D). Nanobubbles grow or shrink by diffusion according to whether the surrounding solution is over-saturated or under-saturated with the dissolved gas relative to the raised cavity pressure. As the solubility of gas is proportional to the gas pressure and this pressure is exerted by the surface tension in inverse proportion to the diameter of the bubbles, there is increasing tendency for gasses to dissolve as the bubbles reduce in size, increases greatly at small bubble diametersa and so accelerating the process. Such dissolution is increased by the bubble’s movement and contraction during this process, which aids the removal of any gas-saturated solution around the cavities. Early theoretical calculations showed that nanobubbles should only persist for a few microseconds [1268]. However, the ease with which water forms larger visible bubbles, under slight tensile pressure well below the tensile strength of water, and the greater difficulty that occurs in this on degassing, both indicate the occurrence of gas-containing nanobubbles (cavities). Clusters of nanobubbles (bubstons) have been proposed that are stabilized by ionic solutes and containing gas at atmospheric pressure [1826]. A model for the nucleation of stable nanobubbles in water has been developed based on water’s cohesive nature [1782]. A high density of nanobubbles has recently been created in solution and the heterogeneous mixture lasts for more than two weeks [1618]. The total volume of gases in these nanobubble solutions reached about 1% v/v under pressure in 1.9 x 1016 50-nm radius nanobubbles (equivalent to about 600 cm3 when converted to standard temperature and pressure) per 1 dm3 of water, and the liquid density was reduced substantially to about 0.988 g.cm-3 [1618]. The surface tension of solutions containing large numbers of nanobubbles seems to be reduced by up to about 15% [2067]. The velocity that bubbles rise freely through an uncluttered solution has been related to the square of their radius such that 100 nm diameter bubble are proposed to take well over two weeks to rise 1 cm whereas 10 µ diameter bubbles only take 2-3 min to rise that far [1966]. Also, the electrostatic interactions between nanobubbles can be large enough for little coalescence to occur [1966] but will slow any rise even more. Thus, micron-plus sized bubbles can also last a long time but have sufficient buoyancy to eventually rise through the solution and release contained gas at the surface before the gas dissolves.

nanobubble nomenclature and measurement (mouse over)

In contrast to the previous theoretical view, there is now much evidence that sub-micron-sized gas-filled nanobubbles can exist for significant periods of time both in aqueous solution [ 974117212691433,15321618] and at aqueous submerged hydrophobic surfaces [5061270].d Their presence has been used to explain the behavior [1775] of water bridges [1361].hBulk phase nanobubbles can be easily detected by diverse techniques (mouse over figure right) including light scattering and a resonant mass measurement [1972] technique (e.g. Archimedes) that can simply distinguish them from solid nanoparticles. Surface nanobubbles can be detected by a number of different techniques, prominent amongst which is tapping mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) [803]. Interestingly, bulk nanobubbles are subject to Brownian motion, so behave as though they have solid shells similarly to solid nanoparticles. Nanobubbles are commonly found on solid hydrophobic surfaces in solutions open to the air, where they appear to be quite stable [1272] and may spread out to form pancake-like structures. Bulk nanobubbles are likely to be repelled from each other, and from negatively charged hydrophilic surfaces, at distance but may attach to such surfaces through water separated films, if they closely approach [1273]. Surface and bulk-phase nanobubbles can both give rise to the otherwise difficult to explain long range attraction between hydrophobic surfaces. As the temperature of aqueous solutions rises, the solubility of non-polar gasses drops, so increasing the gas released and nanobubble volume and surface coverage [842] but generally having much lesser effect on nanobubble concentration.

Nanobubble dimensions

Surface nanobubbles vary considerably in dimensions but typically they might have dimensions of r = 50 nm – 6 µm, rS = 25 – 1000 nm, h = 5 – 20 nm, with contact angles (θ = 135° – 175°) much greater than expected from macroscopic studies. The excess internal pressure is not great when the bubble radius is greater than about a micron.a Surface nanobubbles explain the increased liquid slip at the interface and the resulting lower drag [1988]. Extended flat surface nanobubbles are known as micro- or nano-pancakes. Surface nanobubbles and nanopancakes may be partially stabilized by processes that are not available to the bulk nanobubbles. The hydrophobic wall repels water and raises the solubility of gas molecules as well as increasing the surface radius relative to the bubble size. The lifetime of surface nanobubbles is so long that they may be considered stable [2108], and can withstand near-boiling temperatures [2187].

The likely reason for the long-lived presence of nanobubbles is that the nanobubble gas/liquid interface is charged, introducing an opposing force to the surface tension, so slowing or preventing their dissipation. Curved aqueous surfaces may introduce a surface charge due to water’s molecular structure or its dissociation. It is clear that the presence of like charges at the interface will reduce the internal pressure and the apparent surface tension, with charge repulsion acting in the opposite direction to the surface minimization due to surface tension. Any effect may be increased by the presence of additional charged materials that favor the gas-liquid interface, such as OH- ions at neutral or basic pH or applying negative ions with an anti-static gun that reduces nanobubble diameter (see below) [2066].

typical bulk-phase nanobubble  (mouse over)Additional to this is the slow rate of gas diffusion to the bulk liquid surface from both surfaces and bulk-phase nanobubbles [19731987]; in particular, nanobubbles in a cluster of bulk nanobubbles protect each other from diffusive loss by a shielding effect [2074] effectively producing a backpressure of gas from neighboring bubbles that may be separated by about the thickness of the unstirred layer. This slow dissolution will be even slower than might be expected due to the higher osmotic pressure at the gas liquid interface so both preventing the gas dissolving and driving dissolved gas near the interface back into the nanobubble [2057]. Also, it has been proposed that supersaturation around the nanobubbles may reduce the surface tension significantly, so reducing the pressure [2013] and required backpressure. This concept of a thick interfacial layer is supported by the higher forces required to penetrate greater depths of surface nanobubbles [19861987]. The zeta potential of the nanobubble is shown if you mouse over the figure left. This zeta potential is reduced in the presence of higher ionic strength (positive charges interfering) and lower pH (less OH-) and with greater diameter bubbles (thinner unstirred layer).

Nanobubbles have a tendency towards self-organization [1269] in much the same way as charged oil-water emulsions, colloids [1275] and nanoparticles. This is due to their charge, long range attraction [1322], slow diffusion and interfacial osmotic pressure gradients.

Where there are large numbers of bulk phase nanobubbles, such as in electrolyzed aqueous solutions, there is relatively large amounts of water associated with the surfaces, which can give rise to greater hydration effects due to their greater capacity for forming new hydrogen bonds. Nanobubbles have the effect of increasing the mobility of the water molecules in the bulk as shown by the increase in proton NMR relaxation time T2 [2014].

The question arises as to why these surface charge effects are not seen to affect the determination of the surface tension when different conditions such as pH and solute are used. The answer may be partly that small nanobubbles are constantly moving such that they lose counter ions beyond their slip planes, and partly that the effect of the charged surface is stronger through the low-dielectric gas phase formed by the tightly curved surfaces.

Under 260 nm excitation wavelength, nanobubbles seem to give two wide structure-less photoluminescence bands
at 345 nm and at 425 nm that may be due to the electronic charge density induced by the concentration of hydrated ionic compounds at their interface [800b]. It has been shown that nanobubbles in (still) mineral water can be magnetized and retain this magnetization for more than a day [1780] . [Back to Top to top of page]

The effect of surface charge on surface tension and nanobubble stability.

In the analysis that follows it is shown that surface charge can counter the surface tension, so preventing high pressures within the nanobubbles. Clearly the final net charge density at the surface is that required for stability. It may be expected that as the nanobubble shrinks, the charge density will increase. During this process, some charge density will be expelled to the bulk but it is not clear to what extent this will occur as the energy required for expulsionb must be less than the increase in energy due to the approach of the charges. In any case, surface charge density will always slow down the process of nanobubble collapse. Even at the equilibrium charge density, contained gas will dissolve if the solution interface is under-saturated (but see above), although this is unlikely if the exposed liquid water surface is also in contact with similar gas at similar pressure.

Nanobubble surface charge will tend to expand the bubbles

The effect of charges at the water/gas interface is shown opposite, with the surface negative charges repelling each other and so stretching out the surface. The effect of the charges is to reduce the effect of the surface tension. As the repulsive force between like charges increases inversely as the square of their distances apart the charges cause strongly increasing outwards pressure as bubble diameter lessens. As well as tending to increase the nanobubble diameters, surface charge will clearly also tend to increase the contact angles. The greater van der Waals attraction across the gas bubble also assists in flattening surface nanobubbles [1274].

The surface tension tends to reduce the surface whereas the surface charge tends to expand it. Equilibrium will be reached when these opposing forces are equal. The expected increase in surface charge density as bubbles reduce in volume has been confirmed  [2068].

Assume the surface charge density on the inner surface of the bubble (radius r) is Φ (C m-2). The outwards pressure (Pout, Pa) can be found to give Outwards pressure = phi^2/2xdielectric,c where D is the relative dielectric constant of the gas bubble (assumed unity), ε0 is the  permittivity of a vacuum (= 8.854 pF m-1).  The inwards pressure (Pin, Pa) due to the surface tension on the gas is Inwards pressure=2xsurface tension/radius, where γ is the surface tension (0.07198 N m-1, 25 °C). Therefore if these pressures are equal (Pout = Pin),   rΦ2 = 4Dε0γ = 2.55×10-12 C2 m-3 = ~ 0.1 nm(e- nm-2)2. For nanobubble diameters of 10 nm, 20nm, 50 nm, 100 nm and 200 nm the calculated charge density for zero excess internal pressure is 0.14, 0.10, 0.06, 0.04 e- nm-2 and 0.3 e- nm-2 bubble surface area respectively.g Such charge densities should be achievable; e.g. one surface anion to every about 250 surface water molecules would stabilize a 100 nm diameter nanobubble. The nanobubble radius increases as the total charge on the bubble increases to the power 2/3. Under these circumstances at equilibrium, the ‘effective’ surface tension of the water at the nanobubble surface is zero and the excess pressure is also zero. The presence of charged gas in the bubble clearly increases the size of the stable nanobubble. Further reduction in the bubble size would not be indicated as it would cause the reduction of the internal pressure to below atmospheric pressure and consequent inward gas flow into the bubble. The surface charge is discouraged from dissipating when the bubbles shrink due to the interfacial osmotic pressure gradient giving rise to the metastable nanobubble structures.

The theory above, would predict that greater surface charge density would allow decreased nanobubble diameter, as found in dilute salt solutions [1771]. However, nanobubble size also depends on the bulk properties and increased pH leads to increased nanobubble diameter together with the increase in OH- concentration [506]. It has recently been shown how the stability of nanobubbles in the presence of an amphiphile varies with pH and ionic strength [1298].

It is possible that the bubble could divide to give smaller bubbles due to the surface charge.  Assuming that a bubble of radius r and total charge q divides to give two bubbles of shared volume and charge (radius r½= r/21/3, charge q½=0.5q), and ignoring the Coulomb interaction between the bubbles, calculation of the change in energy due to surface tension (ΔEST) and surface charge (ΔEq) gives:

ΔEST = +2 x 4πγr½2 - 4πγr2 = 4πγr2(21/3 – 1)
DEst =(charge^2/(8pi x e0 x radius))x(1-2^(-2/3))`

The bubble is metastable if the overall energy change is negative which occurs when ΔEST + ΔEq is negative,

Checking if DEST + DEq =< 0

which gives the relationship between the radius and the charge density (Φ):

Phi= charge/(4pi x r^2))>=sqrt(k/r)

For nanobubble diameters of 5 nm, 10 nm, 20nm, 50 nm and 100 nm the calculated charge density for bubble splitting is 0.12, 0.08, 0.06, 0.04 and 0.03 e- nm-2 bubble surface area respectively. For the same surface charge density the bubble diameter is always about three times larger for reducing the apparent surface tension to zero than for splitting the bubble in two. Thus, bubbles will never divide unless there is a further energy input.

The presence of salt ions adversely affects nanobubble stability causing aggregation followed by coalescence at higher salt concentrations [1435]. The aggregation behavior appears similar to that of the salting out of colloidal particles due to the screening of the particle charge by the ionic strength of the solution. Coalescence is due to changes at the gas-water interface. [Back to Top to top of page]


Footnotes

a The pressure inside gas cavities is given by the Laplace equation, Pin  = Pout  +  2γ/r, where Pin and Pout are the cavity internal and external pressures respectively, γ is the surface tension and r is the cavity radius. This equation is simply derived by equating the free energy change on increasing the surface area of a spherical cavity (= γΔA = 4πγ(r+δr)2 - 4πγr2) to the pressure-volume work (= ΔPΔV = ΔP(4/3)π(r+δr)3 - ΔP(4/3)πr3). Although it is not certain that the Laplace equation holds at very small radii [11291807] and it has been shown that surface tension may increase almost 20-fold to 1.3 N m-1 for 150 nm diameter droplets [823] in the absence of other effectors such as surface charge, this equation appears correct down to about a nanometer or so, below which a small correction must be applied [1271]. However, there may well be further contributions to the work required , due to the removal of surface-bound material, as the surface area contracts, that would lower the excess pressure. In the absence of any other surface effects such as solutes or charges, the excess pressures expected in a 50 nm radius spherical nanobubbles and a 50 nm diameter surface nanobubble (rS=50nm, r=1000 nm), due to the surface tension minimizing the cavity surface, are 5.8 MPa and 0.14 MPa respectively. It has been proposed that supersaturation around the nanobubbles may reduce the surface tension significantly, so allowing stable nanobubbles [2013]. [Back]

b The free energy of surface absorption is expected to vary from about 4-10 kJ mol-1at higher concentrations to 25-40 kJ mol-1 at low surface concentrations (~10-3-10-4 nm-2) [674]. [Back]

c This equation may be simply derived by considering the total surface charge (area x charge density, 4πr2Φ) as equivalently concentrated at the center of the spherical cavity and that this charge then exerts a force on the same charge at the surface. The force would be (4πr2Φ)2/4πDε0r2 from basic electrostatics (Coulomb’s law), and therefore the pressure (force per unit area) would be (4πr2Φ)2/(4πDε0r2 x4πr2) = Φ2/Dε0. However for each part of the surface the force has been double counted (towards the surface and towards the center; equivalent to the surface again), therefore the final pressure concerns only half this force (= Outwards pressure = phi^2/2xdielectric). [Back]

d There is some dispute over whether the density depletion often found at hydrophobic surfaces is real in some cases [1487]. Some hydrophobic liquid-water interfaces behave differently, with no vapor-like layer being observed [1484]. [Back]

e Another interesting phenomenon in aqueous solutions is the antibubble where a water drop is held, surrounded by a gaseous film, within the bulk liquid [1491]. [Back]

f Nanobubbles seem to be specific to water and aqueous solutions [1707]. [Back]

g Similar results to these have been more recently published for dilute salt solutions [1771], where the nanobubble size is seen to increase with reduction in the salt concentration. [Back]

h The floating water bridge is a stable nearly cylindrical tube of water of 1-2 mm diameter extending up to 25 mm between two beakers of pure water under the influence of a large (15-25 kV) applied electric potential difference [1361]. [Back]

i Nanobubbles are generally recognized as those gaseous cavities with diameters less than a micron. As such cavities (bubbles) are often greater than 100 nm in diameter but the term ‘nano’ applies mostly to particles of even smaller diameter, it is possible that nanobubbles will be known as ultrafine bubbles or submicron bubbles in the future.

The New Antoxidant

Hydrogen rich water for the prevention and treatment of a variety of diseases—particularly those associated with ROS (reactive oxygen species) and inflammation—has certainly become a hot research subject.

400+ reports in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals, including in vitro and animal studies, plus some clinical trials in humans, have already been published.

Diseases that may be beneficially affected by hydrogen therapy include, (to name a few), atherosclerosis, ischemia-reperfusion injury (as occurs in heart attacks and strokes), diabetes, stress-induced cognitive impairments, Parkinson’s disease (as shown in animal models), and various aspects of the metabolic syndrome (e.g., insulin sensitivity, glucose tolerance, and endothelial function).

As reported in an excellent review on the “recent progress toward hydrogen medicine,” the author describes various methods being used in published animal and human studies to administer hydrogen: inhalation of hydrogen gas, oral ingestion by drinking hydrogen water, hydrogen baths (because hydrogen easily penetrates the skin and distributes throughout the body via blood flow), injection of hydrogen saline, direct absorption of hydrogen (as in hydrogen containing eye drops), and increased production of hydrogen by gut bacteria.

One reason for the use of hydrogen water and hydrogen saline is that it is possible to reliably control the dose administered to experimental animals, which is important in determining results such as dose-response relationships. In the case of gut bacteria-provided hydrogen, it is less easy to determine the hydrogen “dose,” although one way to at least partially overcome this problem is to measure the hydrogen gas excreted by the lungs.

The conclusion of the Studies: Hydrogen Is a Selective Antioxidant, Scavenging Dangerous Radicals
But Not Radicals Important as Physiological Signaling Molecules

Hydrogen and carbon dioxide, as well as (in some people) methane, are gases released by colonic bacteria in the fermentation by the bacteria of carbohydrates that reach the lower digestive tract. Hydrogen has been known to have antioxidant properties for a long time, but its recognition as having some advantages over conventional antioxidants and its potential use as a therapeutic agent have only recently been explored.

One of the most interesting findings concerning hydrogen as an antioxidant is the discovery that it is a novel antioxidant because it scavenges the toxic hydroxyl radical (the strongest of the oxidant species) and the potent oxidant peroxynitrite (formed by the reaction of superoxide and nitric oxide), but is far less effective in scavenging physiological radicals such as superoxide and nitric oxide, important (at low concentrations) as signaling molecules.

Moreover, hydrogen is able to diffuse extremely rapidly into tissue and “effectively reaches the nucleus and mitochondria,”1suggesting “preventive effects on lifestyle-related diseases, cancer, and the aging process.” Hydrogen also passes through the blood-brain barrier, although most antioxidant compounds cannot do this.

Welcome to Club Hydrogen!

Dear AlkaViva Associate,

 

This may be the most important email you have ever received from me! Please read on.

 

We recently learned that the most important number related to our water is not pH or ORP. In fact, the most important number in health and wellness may not be your PSA, cholesterol or blood pressure, an ANDI score or ORAC. The most important number is the Number 1 on the Table of Periodic Elements. Hydrogen. That’s right. Tiny, pervasive, immensely powerful hydrogen.  It turns out that this has been the magic in our water all along…

 

About three months ago, we were introduced to the concept of molecular hydrogen. Molecular hydrogen is just that; a molecule comprised of two hydrogen atoms. It goes by various names, but is most easily referred to as simply H2. We always knew about H2 because electric ionizers create it at the cathode during electrolysis along with OH-. The research had always pointed to the OH- as the important product of the process.

 

More recent research in Japan and Korea has confirmed that the ‘magic’ that makes our water so powerful is, in fact, H2. There are over 350 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in reputable scientific journals such as Science and Nature, pointing to therapeutic benefits of H2 in 138 disease models. A good portion of the research can be seen at www.molecularhydrogeninstitute.com under the “Studies” tab on the main navigation.

 

ALL electric water ionizers produce H2 at the cathode, some with higher concentrations than others. AlkaViva’s machines have been tested and are among the highest H2 saturation level.We believe that ionized alkaline water is still a terrific way to deliver H2 to the body. I still drink from mine every day, all day.

 

There is, however, a fantastic new way you can easily get the benefits we have all enjoyed from our ionizers in a simple and affordable tablet you put in clean water. These revolutionary new H2Viva tablets generate up to 8 times more H2 than our ionizers do!

 

I regularly supplement with H2Viva tablets two to three times per day. Many of us who are using them have found that benefits we expected and enjoyed with ionized water are markedly amplified by supplementing with H2Viva tablets. Personally, I have experienced complete relief of two ongoing inflammation issues and noticed a marked improvement in recovery from my workouts. I will never go a day without H2Viva tablets!

 

We soft-launched H2Viva Tablets on Wednesday Oct 1. They are available now on yourAlkaViva.com website (of course add your username). You will find H2Viva Tablets under Products drop down off the main navigation.

 

On October 21, we will be launching Club Hydrogen, a new way to purchase and sell H2Vivatablets coupled with clean and healthy water. Club Hydrogen will be focused on bringing this powerful new product to market. Club Hydrogen’s ground floor will be comprised of currently active AlkaViva Associates. We will retain the same sponsorship genealogy that exists in AlkaViva. You will not lose any of your active downline. Active AlkaViva Associates will have new Club Hydrogen websites in addition to an AlkaViva website. They will pay through the same pay system.

 

Club Hydrogen will operate with a new, very simple compensation model, which is more appropriate to the lower price point and consumable nature of H2Viva. This simple and easily understood and explained compensation model will operate as an extension of our UltraPay Comp Plan, which was built around the higher priced electric ionizers.

 

Until we launch Club Hydrogen on 10/21, any renewal of an inactive website will receive a FREE bottle of H2Viva with their renewal fee of $49.95. Any new members who you sign up between now and 10/21 will also receive a FREE bottle of H2Viva with their Welcome Kit and membership for the usual fee of $85. We also have a $500 Starter Pack and a $1,000 Builder Pack. Details are on the H2Viva page on your sites.

 

We recognize that there will be a host of questions as to the specifics of how the launch and transition will work.

 

We will be hosting two calls to cover everything;

 

1) Thursday night, October 16, at 6:30 PM. This call is for active or inactive AlkaViva Associates only. We will cover all the details of how this affects your AlkaViva business and how you are positioned in the new Club Hydrogen.

 

You will receive a free sample of H2Viva just by attending the call.

 

2) Tuesday night October 21 at 6:30 PM. This call is for everyone. This call is the one you should bring all your prospects to. This is THE official launch call for Club Hydrogen. You will hear some foundational science from Tyler Lebaron, the head of the Molecular Hydrogen Institute, personal testimonials on the product and the business (remember we are already selling product and starter kits), you’ll hear about the comp plan, how to sample to product to build your business, new websites and more.

 

Please send any questions you may have in advance on either topic to Customer Support so we can be sure to answer them on next Thursday’s AlkaViva Associate call.

 

See here about the comp plan and here about the product and promotional packs available for those who want to purchase or build a business.

 

We could not be more excited. We hope you are, too, and that you join us for both calls and get in front of the wave that is coming with this paradigm-shifting, ground floor product and opportunity.

Whittell Warriors Now 7-0 on the Season!

They beat Smith Valley High School yesterday 70-14.

 

So proud of my son and his team, they continue to improve and play at a level that is very impressive!  The coaching is incredible… This team is firing on all cylinders!  Three more regular season games, two of which will be against the toughest opponents they will face this season.  Chances of going to the playoffs look good, but one game at a time is how they are doing this!

 

Next game is against Mineral County High School in Hawthorne NV, a 3+ hour drive away from home….  This team beat Smith Valley last week by a similar score, so should be a competitive game!

 

Go Warriors!

More Fluoride News

AlkaViva’s UltraWater Filtration Technology removes fluoride to NON DETECTABLE LEVELS, as well as many many other nasty things that can be found in tap as well as bottled water!  Take back your tap with AlkaViva UltraWater Technology!

FLUORIDEGATE DEEPENS WITH RELEASE OF 2000 PAGES OF FOIA DOCUMENTS

 

Emails released by freedom-of-information  requests reveal a too-close relationship among members of the Centers for Disease Control’s Oral Health Division (CDC), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Pew Foundation. It appears they protect fluoridation while dismissing, insulting andmarginalizing those who raise valid health concerns, reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc (NYSCOF).

Attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President says, “It’s interesting to learn how closely the ADA, CDC and Pew are monitoring what NYSCOF and other groups who oppose fluoridation are doing and writing instead of allowing us to attend their meetings or participate directly in their email discussions.”

Artificial fluoridation began in 1945, aimed at teeth, without considering how unnatural fluoride chemicals could affect other body functions or population subsets, e.g., minorities, kidney patients.

CDC says, “The safety and effectiveness of fluoride at levels used in community water fluoridation has been thoroughly documented…”

However, Pew’s William Maas, (former CDC Oral Health Division Director) admits “There is a lot of uncertainty,” regarding fluoride’s effects to kidney patients in a May 2011 email to ADA Director of Congressional Affairs, Judith Sherman, (a registered ADA lobbyist).

Cc’d is William Bailey, then acting Director of CDC’s Oral Health Division, who responds: “End stage renal disease may be another issue. Since the body excretes fluoride through the kidneys, it is reasonable to assume that people with end stage [renal] disease may experience a buildup of fluoride.”

Correspondence from CDC’s National Fluoridation Engineer, Kip Duchon, to ADA’s Fluoridation Manager, Jane McGinley, seems improper:

January 2010

“I thought I might clandestinely suggest to you that you might want to contact them [National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research] about posting an ADA fluoridation link on their pages since ADA is a partner to NIDCR…I would ask that you not indicate that you got this from me or CDC.”

September 2010

“…since you rank as a special friend with elevated consideration, I am sharing with you (confidentially, so don’t pass on to anyone without asking me first if you can) my most recent review of this information that I prepared for a ‘special’ and confidential use_ (wink-wink)…” (Attached was a document entitled EPA Report 09-15-lO.xls that wasn’t released in the FOIA)

Also seemingly improper is a 9/6/11 email from ADA’s lobbyist to CDC’s William Baileyoffering to help the Surgeon General “develop a response” to fluoridation criticism.

Heavily blacked-out emails seem to attempt to quell civil rights leaders’ fluoridation opposition. Instead of warning minorities of their disproportionate harm, ADA tells then HHS Assistant Secretary of Health, Howard Koh,they fear the issue can potentially “gain traction.”

Beeber says, “When FluorideGate hearings begin, individuals, not organizations, will be placed under oath and the truth will come out. The public should be outraged that the CDC is collaborating with the politically-powerful, industry-funded ADA.”
